Michelle hails from the Order of the Red Grail, a local Wiccan church, and has been regularly guesting on the Mess for some time now. Murf recently extended the invitation to her to join the crue and make a Mess of things with the rest of us. Murf and her Minions are looking forward to get her trained on the boards and making her a permanent addition the Mess.

MMM: Mabon Mess 9/21/14

Photo: What happens when Murphy and I think too much alike for the music on Murphy's Magic Mess. "Turtle mode." Poor Kate.(Editor’s note: We are playing a little catch up with play lists. We apologise for the delays.) The Autumnal Equinox, Mabon, has arrived. The day before the celestial event Murf, *K8, and Phil put this show together for your listening enjoyment.

The picture to the left should be explained. Murf and Phil have been doing the show together for nearly six years. *K8 is the newest addition to the Mess. Often times Phil and Murf find themselves thinking along the same lines for show ideas, tracks to play, sometimes even saying the same things in unison. Sometimes these incidences scare *K8. This particular picture was taken after Phil commented to Murf that on his way into the studio he was thinking that some Lindie Lila would be great for the show, Murf had picked a Lindie Lila track for the show! And then they both spelled something out for *K8 in stereo. After which Phil said to her, “After five years with Murf, you too will starting thinking like us.” Thus, she hid inside her shirt. Going “Turtle” as she called it.
